    That was a Baker Jr., black limba, serial number KT002.

    I own KT001. Great guitars. Gene only made two. Pete Faragher sold KT002 last month.

    Damn!

    I wish it was me!

    That is simply beautiful...I have never seen a single flat top dual p90 guitar which I could see myself playin...this really chages things.

    That is gorgeous! Is it stained? I thought black limba was lighter.

    Ok this may sound dumb but that is a really great looking guitar , Both of these bakers but for some reason that pickguard as so much to the looks.

    They have an orange tint to the finish, but not overdone. The neck is like a '59 carve. I bought mine from Dave Orban. This is the best Jr. style guitar I've ever played or heard, and I've played some real nice old Jr.'s. I've had several other Bakers too, and this one is my favorite. I like the uniqueness and vibe of it.

    Mine looks just like the one in the top picture.

    The Baker KT002 is now mine!!!

    I was in the right place at the right time (surfing TGP at work).

    KT002 might be the best guitar I have ever owned (which is an incredible feat
    after buying and selling guitars since 1968) It will have to be pried from my cold, dead hands

    There have been quite a few of us who have owned it.
    I was I believe the 3rd owner and got it from Marcus McQ the well known Baker fanatic. I believe he owned close to 100 Bakers... I traded it for one of the first Santana PRS's .. In retrospect I should have kept it... :jo

    Yes sir you are correct.
    But I believe you and I have very similar habits.
    I remember someone asking you why you sold a particular piece of equipment.
    Your reply was very short and to the point. You said "I sell everything".
    Well it looks like I do to...:D

    Here's my p-90 Baker.
    Killer guitar.The blue one next to it is the nicest sounding and playing Baker I ever played and I've probably played over a hundred.
    Heck I owned 13 at one time.
    But I put an end to that madness and kept the Jr. which should attest to what a cool guitar it is.
    That 002 just kills me though!!

    I think Dave and I ordered these at the same time.
    Really nice guitar, that one.
    However, I had to have some other glittering bauble, so out the door it went.
    Regrets...I've had a few.

    :)
